Tiskárna Resl in the Czech Republic Invests in Two More Muller Martini Systems

Resl Follows Up the Presto II With an Alegro and a Ventura MC

D.R.J. Tiskárna Resl s.r.o. in the Czech town of Náchod will use state-of-the-art print finishing systems from Muller Martini for perfect binding and thread sewing as well as saddle stitching, following up its investment last year in a Presto II with an Alegro and a Ventura MC.

"With our existing softcover and hardcover systems, which are more than a decade old, we are coming up against the limits in terms of quality of the end products and cost-effective production," explains Jiří Resl Jr., whose father Jiří Resl Sr. established the family business, which employs 35 people, in 1991 and whose son Jakub is also involved in the company. That has prompted Tiskárna Resl to make a technological advance in perfect binding and thread sewing too, just under a year after investing in a Presto II saddle stitcher (the first machine from Muller Martini in the company's history). "There were two reasons why we again opted for Muller Martini," explains Resl Jr. "First, we've had excellent experiences with the Presto II. Second, we consider the Alegro the best perfect binder and the Ventura MC the best book sewing machine in the market."

Czech Republic Gets First Alegro
The new perfect binding line – the first of its type in the Czech Republic – includes the brand new Granit three-knife trimmer, which Muller Martini unveiled a few weeks ago at its open house event in Vienna, and the newly developed 3692 gathering machine. Tiskárna Resl, which also operates a forwarding company with 70 employees and 60 trucks, will use the Alegro and the Ventura MC to produce magazines, brochures and textbooks for the Czech Republic and Slovakia with runs of between 3,000 and 10,000 copies.

The new machines, together with a new Ryobi 755 sheet-fed offset printing press, will be commissioned at the end of this year, providing everything goes well with the construction permit for the new hall. Production with the Presto II will then also be moved to the new hall. Muller Martini will take care of its relocation as part of its MMServices program. "It's a great benefit to us to have all three machines alongside one another," underlines Resl Jr. "It means one machine operator can control several systems, which is straight-forward thanks to the identical operating philosophy of the Muller Martini systems."

Stimulus for the Whole Region
"This investment will spur on many other medium-sized printing plants in the Czech Republic and Slovakia," says Roland Henn, Regional Director at Muller Martini Eastern Europe. "We're also very pleased that those interested can take a look at the Granit, which is an ideal means to retrofit and upgrade older equipment, at Tiskárna Resl at any time, because the company is very open toward other printing plants."
